I think it’s safe to say that I love a good neutral outfit. When I was at Nordstrom doing some anniversary sale shopping (which ends this week so if you want something, you better place an order now before prices go up), I spotted this top which is not part of the sale but I just had to get it. Even if it was still full price. I mean, it’s neutral and stripes…what’s not to love?! But of course now it’s 40% off and under $25, and I’m wishing I would have Read More

As I’m putting this post together, I’m nodding off to sleep and it’s only 10:30pm. I’m pretty sure I’m secretly 90-years-old because I can’t stay up late and I need a lot of sleep. Anyways, on to my cute kimono. Don’t you just love kimonos?! It’s been way super hot here (like over 100 degrees) and all I want to wear is a simple tank + shorts. I love that kimonos add extra style to an outfit but they’re so loose fitting and lightweight that they don’t overheat you. Also, my favorite denim shorts Read More

We had days near 90 degrees in April but now in May, it rained last week and it’s raining again today and tomorrow. I think it’s time I get some spring trench coats. I have the pink one so I’ve been wearing that but now I think I need more. Plus, I Read More

I had to take these outfit pictures twice because the first time I took them, I was standing against a dark grey background and my legs totally blended in. Come on Kacie! Grey jeans against a grey background?! What were you thinking?! It looked like my legs had disappeared and I was just a floating head and torso. The second time around I didn’t want to take any chances of blending in so I went with a white background. Of course, now my skin blends with the white background because I’m as pale as a ghost.

BACKPACK

By | Blue, Fall Outfit, Fashion, Leopard, Spring Outfit, Style, White | 35 Comments

Remember how in middle school, the nurse would check everyone for scoliosis? Well one year, the nurse thought I might have it and wanted to send me to some special doctor to get my back looked at. The nurse said my heavy backpack and “one-strapping” it was hurting my back. So what did my parents do? They made me use a rolling backpack! Ugh! Those things were the worse. I had come up with a master plan to get rid of it…with the help of my friends, we were going to break it. We’d give each other rides on it and jump off curbs with it, and on one glorious day, it finally broke! I took it to my dad and acted all sad about breaking my backpack (I didn’t want to get in trouble for doing it on purpose) and guess what?! He got out some tools and fixed it! I swear that thing was indestructible! I finally went to the doctor and he said my back was good and I finally broke the rolling backpack beyond repair so I got to go back to my regular cool backpack. The doctor did tell me that from then on, I needed to wear my backpack properly and I think nowadays the kids are “two strapping” it but I’m a 90’s kid and I just can’t help but stick with the one strap. Old habits die hard.

P.S. This backpack also has top handles so it can be carried like a purse too 🙂

I pinned this outfit a while ago and have been wanting to recreate the look ever sense. Only one problem…I didn’t have an olive green tee. Or did I? When I was cleaning out my closet/reorganizing it, I found my olive green tee that I had completely forgotten about. Cody said it’s a sign I have too many clothes but I say it’s a sign I need a bigger closet so I can see my clothes better. I think we can all agree that I’m right 😉
